Pan-Canada Proof of Vaccination Card

Starting October 25 2021, the new federal immunization card - called the Pan-Canadian Proof of Vaccination Card (PVC) - is available for fully vaccinated Manitobans for domestic or international travel. The PVC is intended to be used for travel within Canada, and upon entry into Canada when returning from abroad. This document will be required at airports throughout Canada, VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer trains, and at any Canadian border crossing (CBSA). 

Individuals who currently have a digital Manitoba immunization card or are applying for one can visit or call 1-844-MAN-VACC (1-844-626-8222) to request their PVC, in digital or hard copy. 

It is strongly recommended that individuals continue to use Manitoba’s immunization card while in the province. The PVC includes more information, such as date of birth, date of immunization and the brand of vaccine received.  Manitoba’s immunization card contains no personal health information, which better protects privacy.

Manitoba’s verifier app will continue to read the provincial and has been upgraded to read the national QR codes. This means businesses and other venues will not have to change the way they check immunization status as the federal card becomes more widely used.
